Notes/Commercial Description:
Raspberry Wheat delivers the same smooth taste of Shock Top, with a hint of raspberry flavor. This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale is brewed with essence of wild raspberry and hand-selected hops. It’s this combination that gives it its crisp and distinctive Shock Top taste, with its own flavorful twist. This unfiltered ale has a light-golden color and a smooth finish, and if you’re curious, it technically doesn’t, not count toward your daily fruit intake.

2.42/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured from 12oz bottle.

A- Poured a hazy yellow orange color. One finger white head shows poor retention. Some streaks of lace on the sides of the glass...these tend to fall back into the beer itself.

S- Raspberry in the front end of the beer has a artifical aroma to it. Wheat undertones in the rest of the beer with sweet alcohol in the ending.

T- Raspberry in the front of the beer. This tasted to me like B to the E did in the front from the can I had a couple weeks ago. So this beer in the front tastes like a beer that has been out of date for 5 years...nice job AB! The backend is more wheat with hints of the raspberry. Alcohol comes through a little sweet at times in the ending.

M- Medium light mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Raspberry (artifical) and wheat left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly sweet alcohol, raspberry, and wheat. Flavors were blended to what it said it was going to be. No off flavors at all. Light alcohol drying on the palate from each sip.

O- The taste profile of this and B to the E was interesting and almost the same to be honest. I didn't really care for this but it at the same time wasn't the worst beer I had. If someone bought me one I would drink it...but as far as drinking one myself...no thank you.

2.31/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Color naranja, con cabeza que desaparece rapidamente sin dejar encaje, carbonatacion media, aroma completamente dominado por la frambuesa.

Sabor dulce, levemente citrico sin amargor pero con cierto grado de acides y dominado por el sabor frutal a frambuesa pero con un gusto artificial.

cuerpo ligero, facil de tomar y deja una sensacion acida en toda la boca.

look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Can: Poured a light yellow color ale with a light bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of fake raspberry syrup is quite awful with quite a bit of residual sugars. This is closer to a cooler than beer. Taste is a mix between some grainy wheat malt notes with quite a bit of residual sugar and way too much of the awful raspberry syrup. Body is light with good carbonation. I wasn’t expecting some kind of masterpiece but what a bunch of crap this beer was.
